Center stand bump stop

Can anyone tell me or show me what you're doing for a bump stop when the cat is removed on 99 R1100S ? Thanks

I went the other way, installed the cat and the center stand. I've seen pictures of a few cat delete pipes that had a rod that went side to side and had a triangle piece that sticks down for the rubber bumper.

I thought about using a stainless hose clamp to mount a Z bracket directly to the cat delete pipe for the bumper to rest on. would look funny hanging down when bike is on center stand, but in motion, who cares.

Thanks, that's what I was thinking. Fabricate a bracket to go from side to side. Powder coat it black to blend in with the pipe and frame.

Here's pics of what I did. I drilled & tapped the cat mounting tab (similar to thread referenced above). I did both sides, but one side will work just fine. Easy to adjust so that center stand is level to the ground when up without hitting the torque arm.

BTW - I like the paint job.

McMaster-Carr sells those bump stops. Work like a charm.

Yes, very clean install, tic. Are the metal parts of your assembly (threaded stud, washers and nut) stainless steel? Just curious; as that area of the bike is subject to all kinds of road grime, water, etc.

Yes, all stainless bolts & washers. I tried to find the right bump stops on McMaster Carr but ended up finding some rubber shock pieces at a local auto parts store and used those.
